green grass, for how long can he sustain himself in the race? Same is the case
with people who attain higher degrees or are scholars, but still do not understand
the realities of life.

There are ways from light into darkness and from darkness into light. There are ways, also, from the gloom into deeper darkness, and from the dawn into brighter light. The wise man will use the light he has to receive more light. He will constantly advance in the knowledge of truth.
- Gautama Buddha
Life is nothing but a competition to be the criminal rather than the victim.
